Care Source Adult Services, a company that cares for mentally and physically-impaired individuals so they can remain independent in their homes, became accredited by The Joint Commission (JCAHO) in November. JCAHO, an independent, not-for-profit organization, is the nation’s leading standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare. Their mission is to improve the quality of care provided to the public by setting high standards and evaluating health care organizations against those standards. By taking the time and effort to submit to JCAHO’s rigorous screening process and obtain accreditation, Care Source Adult Services has demonstrated that they share JCAHO’s commitment to quality. They are one of only two in-home care companies in Camden County that have received JCAHO accreditation.
“There is no requirement that an in-home care company be accredited by The Joint Commission,” says Sandra Batdorf, founder and director of Care Source Adult Services, “but I want to run our company in accordance with the best practices in home care so I pursued accreditation. Now our clients can feel secure knowing that we follow the strict policies and procedures set forth by The Joint Commission.”
Care Source Adult Services took about nine months to go through the accreditation process which involved writing and implementing policies and procedures in accordance with JCAHO’s standards. Then JCAHO inspectors spent two days to review all areas of the operation and to talk with Care Source’s clients. Inspectors not only looked at record keeping and personnel management, but also patient care. “With the JCAHO stamp of approval I am confident that we are offering the best home care service available,” says Batdorf.
Care Source Adult Services enables individuals who need assistance with daily living activities to live independently in their homes. The company provides home health and companion aide services in Camden, Gloucester and Salem Counties as well as surrounding areas in New Jersey. Caregivers and Certified Home Health Aides provide assistance with errands, transportation to doctors, medication reminders, housekeeping, laundry, grooming, dressing, bathing and safety monitoring and more.
